Jubb have been involved in advising clients on regeneration schemes for decades. Our breadth of knowledge enables us to sit alongside clients advising them at all stages of the process, this ‘trusted partner’ approach has led to the successful delivery of quality schemes on some very challenging previously developed land.
As part of Welcome Break’s rolling programme of redevelopment and refurbishment of their suite of Service Stations across the country, Sarn Services, off the M4 Junction 36, will have a new Reception and parking facilities.
The existing dated facilities will be demolished and replaced with a new 4000 sq.ft amenity building housing Burger King, Starbucks, WH Smith, gaming and bathroom facilities with supported staffing areas. In addition to the new amenity building a new 4000m2 car park with Starbucks Drive-Thru facilities and 5000m2 lorry and bus parking will be provided to compliment the pre-existing petrol filling station.
Jubb were appointed by CAN Geotechnical to undertake an inspection of an historic rail tunnel and steep Limestone rock cuttings formed through the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB) in North Somerset.
Shute Shelve tunnel is used as a bridleway and forms part of the national cycle route. Kier Group are working for Bristol Water, to install a new water main between Bristol and Cheddar and Shute Shelve tunnel was selected as the optimum route as it avoids damage to the Mendip Limestone escarpment.
Jubb’s design includes a rock fall containment meshing and rock bolt system to a 70m length section of unlined the tunnel crown, dentition work to the North tunnel portal area and a rock fall containment barrier to the South tunnel portal.
Rock scaling to the South approach rock cuttings was specified to reduce the risk of rock falls, in-line with the North Somerset Council’s (NSCC) asset management strategy.
Conservation vegetation management was specified to the cuttings, working in collaboration with NSCC’s open spaces team, including coppicing of broadleaf saplings.
Jubb’s expert geo-hazard capability includes the investigation, assessment and design of rock and soil slope stabilisation and protection measures.
Jubb are appointed to undertake annual inspections of the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, on behalf of the Dover Port Authority.
Jubb’s remit also includes inspection of a series of tunnels excavated into the cliffs, that form part of the Port’s estate portfolio.
Following the first cliff inspection undertaken in 2016, Jubb’s Ground Engineering Solutions team developed a bespoke Rock Fall Hazard Index (RFHI) tool, to provide the Port Authority with a clear risk based, multi-criteria assessment of rock fall hazard.
Dover Port is a nationally important transport hub that sees some of the highest vehicle movements in the UK. Protecting infrastructure and the public from rock fall hazards is fundamentally important to the safe operation of the Port.
Jubb have been appointment to carry out advanced rock fall analysis and are using specialist software to undertake this work, which will provide a higher level of accuracy in assessing risk.
Jubb’s expert geo-hazard capability includes the investigation, assessment and design of risk and soil slop stabilisation and protection measures.
This major redevelopment of an 18-hectare, former caravan park in a prime location at Seaton, created 500 residential units, a hotel, 70,000 sq ft of food retail and a themed Visitor Centre.
The site’s low-lying location adjacent to environmentally sensitive marshes and the River Axe created challenging Flood Risk issues which had to be resolved. Jubb developed an innovative “environmentally positive” flood risk strategy which was enthusiastically supported by the Environment Agency securing planning permission for the whole development.
Following the outline works reserved matters for the residential Housing, Tesco Store, Visitor Centre and Hotel site have been supported by subsequent reporting and assessment.
As part of the Town Centre regeneration, The Rhiw scheme is one of the first large developments earmarked by the Local Authority. Situated on the site of the existing multi-storey car park on the river front and adjacent to The Rhiw Shopping Centre, it provides a new focal point for the Town Centre.
The multi-storey car park provides 248 spaces, including disabled and parent and toddler, in a vibrant well-lit welcoming environment with easy access to the adjacent shopping centre. Structurally independent but Architecturally linked, the four-storey residential building adjoins the car park with the undercroft parking at ground floor and A3 unit at first.
Jubb, as part of the project team appointed by Bristol City Council, have been commissioned to provide multi-disciplinary services to support the redevelopment of the Bristol City Council’s Romney House Office site to provide up to 268 residential dwellings in a high quality development which is currently subject of a live planning application due for determination in June 2018.
This development is situated within the iconic Royal William Yard in Plymouth, Devon. The project is within the Grade I listed structure known as the Factory Cooperage and built from Local Limestone; some of which was quarried on site. The project sees a near 200 year old building brought back into use and provides an excellent setting for the Artist facilities of Ocean Studios. The space now provides affordable studios and workshop facilities for over 100 artists as well as providing business support.
Throughout the journey Jubb assisted the team to take the project through early conception, planning and on to successful completion. Jubb provided the Civil and Structural services associated with the building; within these works were consultations with English Heritage (now Historic England) and the local conservation officer to ensure that alterations and details were acceptable under listed building consent.
Provision of planning stage highways, transportation and civil engineering advice in support of proposals to develop the area to the west of the City Centre of Bath within the Riverside Enterprise Area. The proposals will redevelop the existing Avon Street car park to provide residential, employment and retail use with an associated improved pedestrian and cyclist environment to enhance accessibility for sustainable modes of transport.
The scheme will also implement a reduced level of public car parking from that provided at present and will also include a relocated site vehicle access. The impacts of this in terms of design and in terms of traffic impact have been considered by JUBB in the associated submissions relating to the scheme.
The Bath Quays Waterside Project is an essential flood mitigation and flood defence project, including works to the north and south banks of the river between Churchill Bridge and Midland Bridge to address the negative impacts of climate change.
The works will reduce existing and future flood risk to the Lower Bristol Road and over 100 residential and commercial properties on the South side of the river through the provision of new flood defences and furthermore provide the flood mitigation to enable the redevelopment of the Bath Quays and Manvers Street development sites in order to realise the Council’s ‘Bath Quays’ project and deliver new jobs and homes.
Since 2000 our staff have been assisting the HCA (formerly SWRDA) in the mixed-use regeneration of the former Royal Naval Air Station site into Osprey Quay at Portland. The scheme evolved over multiple phases involving the planning, design, procurement and contract administration of around £15 million of enabling public and private infrastructure and public realm.
Site uses include a mix of residential, industrial and leisure facilities including the delivery of the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy – host venue for the 2012 Olympic Games. Our people led the planning, design and delivery of the venue which included the delivery of extensive sea reclamation, slipways and viewing platforms, mini marina protected by breakwaters and crane hoist facilities.
Works delivered include:
We are still involved today in the management of maintenance works to the extensive flood defences at the site, the completion of public realm enhancements and assisting HCA with the disposal of development plots and bespoke developers to deliver individual plots.
In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, our business resilience planning is now being implemented. Whilst we have not closed our offices at this time, we have empowered all staff to work remotely should they choose to do so, and our business infrastructure is fully enabled to seamlessly support the transition to this style of working. Additionally, Government advice may shortly dictate the need for us to make the closure of offices compulsory in the interests of safeguarding wider public health.
We continue to be fully operational but these measures are likely to produce a change to our working patterns.
You may therefore find that you have difficulty reaching us by our main office and direct dial landline telephone numbers but all staff can be still contacted by email, mobile numbers and Microsoft Teams.
